About Verizon Communications Performance

To evaluate Verizon Communications Stock as a possible investment, you need to clearly understand its upside potential, downside risk, and overall future performance outlook. You may be satisfied when Verizon Communications generates a 15% return over the last few months, but what if the market is generating 25% over the same period? In this case, it makes sense to compare Verizon Stock's performance with different market indexes, such as the Dow or NASDAQ Composite. These indexes can act as benchmarks that will help you to understand Verizon Communications market performance in a much more refined way. The Macroaxis performance score is an integer between 0 and 100 that represents Verizon's market performance from a risk-adjusted return perspective. Generally speaking, the higher the score, the better is overall performance as compared to other investors. The score is normalized against the average investing universe (the best we can interpret from the data available). Within this methodology, scores of individual equity instruments will always be inferior to the scores of portfolios of equities as portfolios typically diversify a lot of unsystematic risks away. The formula to derive the Macroaxis score bases on multiple unequally-weighted factors. For more information, refer to our portfolio performance evaluation section.
